. >>> other news, president obama and germany's leader facing some serious questions today on foreign policy flash points including the crisis in ukraine. the president just wrapped up a joint news conference with the german chancellor angela merkel. the u.s. is warning of tougher sanctions against russia over ukraine. the president saying the preference is a diplomatic solution but if that doesn't happen the next step is more sanctions. he says he understands the concerns of some european countries but he's confident the u.s. and the european union will stand together. >> the goal is not to punish russia. the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course. and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i think we are united on that front. within europe, within the eu, i'm sure there has to be extensive consultations. you've got 28 countries and some are more vulnerable than others to potential russian retaliation. we have to take those into account. not every country is going to be in exactly the same place. what has been remarkable is the degree to which all countri
the u.s. and germany united and sent another stern warning to moscow. >> we are united in our determination to impose costs on russia for its actions as ukrainian forces move to restore order in eastern ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these russian-backed groups are not peaceful protesters but heavily armed militants receiving significant support from russia. >> times are also tense with ukrainian army launching the first major assault on separatist strong holds in the east of that country. a spokesman for putin called the move a criminal act. nbc news chief white house correspondent chuck todd, also host of "the daily rundown" joins us. how critical was it for the president to get merkel on board with sanctions? >> reporter: it's interesting, that is a glass is half full way of looking at it. here's what clearly they agree to. they have the next deadline that they've set to decide whether to do another round of sanctions and that is the may 25th election. you heard the president essentially say if russia destabilizing the situation, makes -- tries to mess with this e
to gorbachev that nato would not expand, for instance, to eastern germany. we could not find it, maybe somebody find it, but we have no record. we had no records of that. but gorbachev apparently seems to believe still today that he had such a promise. and president yeltsin believed that he had a promise, and they detail how he was led to believe that, that partnership for peace was with instead of nato in -- [inaudible] not the first step, not a preparative step which i knew because delbert and then christopher and my western european colleagues spent time to explain that to me. while they failed to tell that to president putin -- to president yeltsin at that time. so that brings me back to my point. it's not enough for the to be on the right side of history. it's important. but they should speak in clear terms. that's what russians deserve. that's what putin deserves. that's what russian parliament deserves. that's what ukrainian people in particular today because they are suffering in the war actually. so they deserve very, very clear message. and the message which meets the end. because som
in the intelligence that germany could offer. so we may see some warmth between the leaders, but you can bet behind closed doors there are much stronger wordings. >> and with the situation in ukraine, there was once that the two leaders stood side by side when it came to russia, and this time that is not a certainty. >> they realize that it would be in president putin's best interest to see daylight between what angela merkel and president obama want. however, they have different goals. germany is have codependant on russia when it comes to oil and gas, they do $100 billion in trade. and president obama pushing for much stronger sanctions and sanctions that have not yet hit the oil and gas industry. but even though they have different ultimate means to the end, they want president putin to listen. >> the hots on capitol hill saying they want more action in ukraine, some suggesting even that there be boots on the ground, and yet it is the european leaders that are the ones that would have to suffer the consequences of those boots on the ground and suffer through the economic sanctions that the white
to him multiple timesk and germany is pivotal, because they are reluctant to go further with the further ek sectorial sanctions, because of the impact on the german economy. the trade between germany and russia was $1 billion and u.s. and germany was only $38 million. and germany gets roughly one-third of the oil and gas from russia, so a real concern within the german industry that they are the ones putting the pressure on angela merkel to be careful of what she does next because of the ricochet effect, and anything they do in russia could come back to haunt the german economy as well. >> a lot of money is at stake. and ambassador holliday, i want to get to you, and what do you think about the sanctions, and could they really get vladimir putin to change course here? >> well, it is going to be difficult to get him to change the course, but the increased sa sanctions could be twofold. one, we could get the europeans and germany in particular to escalate the sanctions on targeted energy companies, on that sector, but broadly speaking, we could go up to full sectorial sanctions which would
